Here’s a quick synopsis of the storyline:

Sheltering in the ancient tombs of Luxor’s sacred Valley of the Kings when the Arab-Israeli “Lightening War” erupts, Sixties-protesters Paul Rhodes and Carol Lane consummate a tryst that scandalizes war-torn Egypt. Separated in the ensuing chaos, Paul escapes arrest and flees through the corrupted countries of post-colonial Africa and Asia, buffeted by the smuggling, black marketeering, and idealistic fervor that marked those nations’ passages to independence. But memories of Carol, the Berkeley Free Speecher and acid rocker of his exotic liaison, thrust him ever deeper into the turbulence of the Sixties, and impel him country by country back to the US and to a stunning confrontation with the military establishment that stands between him and the woman he loves…an epic story of love and loss in a time of turmoil.
